Bored at work?
Of course you are.
Fancy a bit of a sailing fix to get you through the day?
Of course you do.
With the last Sailing World Cup event before the Olympics on this week, you can avoid work and get your sailing fix by following it online in the any or all of these ways:
- Firstly, they have a Live Blog which will keep you up-to-date with everything that's going on on the water...
- ...but if you want to get even closer to the action then you could use the Live Tracking that they have. You can follow races in 2D or 3D, and you can even watch back previous races...
- ...or you could follow World Sailing on Twitter, as they tweet results throughout the day...
- ...or, if you actually intend to do some work today, you could just go to the Sailing World Cup News page and get the details at the end of the day's racing.
Finally, if you are going to be a real goody two-shoes then you could just tune in to the Medal Races on Sunday which are being shown live on YouTube:

And then there is the little matter of the America's Cup World Series in Chicago this weekend. Racing is on Saturday and Sunday, and you can find out what your viewing options are by clicking here and selecting you country.
It is a shame that so little of the coverage is free-to-air - it is hard to build a new audience when you're asking them to pay for the pleasure of watching in the first place.
